Ginisang Upo with Sotanghon, White Gourd with Vermicelli Noodles

Ginisang Upo with Sotanghon, White Gourd with Vermicelli Noodles. I found this newly picked upo at the Thai Store near my place. It is a bit pricey but I have been craving for real Pinoy vegetables lately. Without hesitation I bought a medium size piece and with it a small pocket of sotanghon noodles. What was in my mind was a soupy sautéed upo with sotanghon, cooked with pork strips and shrimps. I do have several upo dish in the archives but this is the first time I added sotanghon with ginisang upo. The recipe is not new in fact I had this before at several carinderias back in Manila. The sotanghon noddle definitely goes well with upo beside its intended carinderia use as extender. Here is the recipe on how I cooked Ginisang Upo with Sotanghon, White Gourd with Vermicelli Noodles.
